4 stars What a wonderful suprise...Yes making a great studio album in the 21st century; music that is both modern and still shows strong links back to their past glories. And it's one of the few albums that really does successfully marry a rock group with an orchestra - they really do compliment, rather than fight against each other. A little inconsistent in places, but some great melodies, good arrangements, and excellent production. Not "yer typicall" Yes album but for this devotee of Yes in their golden years, a wonderful find. Although the group are credited with all compositions, you can hear Anderson's influence on tracks like "Time is Time", and "Can You Imagine" is clearly a Squire effort, in the style of "Hold out your Hand" from Fish Out Of Water. A worthy candidate for best prog album of the new Millenium....? Well certainly worthy of your consideration!
